Bring Our Troops Home
Tell Congress to end the war in Afghanistan.
 

 

Dear The McGlynn,

This could be the week that we begin to end the war in Afghanistan.

For years, we’ve worked with progressive hero Rep. Jim McGovern to end the war and bring home our troops. And now, with the death of Osama bin Laden, we’ve never had a better opportunity to convince the rest of Congress that it’s time to end this war.?

Congress is set to vote this week on McGovern’s plan to bring home our troops from Afghanistan.1 But not everyone in the House knows about the vote, or supports ending the war, yet. You can convince them.

President Obama has already promised to begin a major drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan this summer. Now that bin Laden is dead, there’s even more reason to end the longest war in U.S. history. 

But some conservatives in Congress don’t agree. And some are arguing that bin Laden’s death proves the war is working so well, we should keep it going permanently.2

We can’t let that happen. We can’t afford an endless war. It’s time to end this war, bring home our troops and reinvest those billions of dollars in restoring our economy and putting Americans back to work.??

If you agree, please contact your Representative and ask them to end the war by voting YES on the McGovern amendment to the Defense Authorization bill this week.??

In peace,

Drew Hudson
